A few names of some different types of wines are riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, merlot and carbernet sauvignon. Each type of wine has different varieties with similar but distinct flavors, depending on the region, grapes and method used to make the wine.
Rieslings are a type of wine that goes well with white meat dishes such as pork, fish and chicken. It's often a sweet type of wine that is also acidic. Rieslings are lighter than Chardonnay wines, made from the grape of the same name, which feature notes of citrus and have buttery tones derived from the fermentation process based on the wood used for the barrels.
